    Task Host appears one shutting down


    I have a new (a few months) Lenovo laptop with Windows 10. When I try to shut down, I get a screen stating "Task Host" is operating and asking me to close programs or gives me the option to force shutdown. This is confusing. The Computer works fine. I cannot imagine I need to run some complicated "repair" procedure on a new computer (as noted in a previous thread on this issue). I read something about the "Power" settings but this, too, is not clear.


    Is there a Windows Update or some rebooting procedure to stop this? I have no idea what "Task Host" is; any help is appreciated.

    Problem with the Task Host Window and the shutting down

    Hi Sayan_Gosh, thanks for your fast response! I will answer first all the four questions that you are asking me:

    • The PC that I'm using is a Gateway model DX4860 with previous Windows 7 Home Premium.
    • I have upgrade to Windows 10 using Windows update settings.
    • I have Norton Security Deluxe installed in my PC.
    • And finally, all programs were closed before shutting down Windows.
    I will execute your initial recommendations and the
    diagnostic steps that you suggest me; and I will let you know the status of the "Task Host issue".

    Task Host is stopping background tasks : message at shut down

    Some programs take time to exit memory; especially if you had a lot of them open.

    What I suggest you do is make sure all programs are probably exited, especially web browsers like Edge that you might have had open with lots of tabs.
